Even though I write for a living, I still find the hardest thing to write about is myself.
But I love a good challenge. Let’s see. Of the 20-some years I’ve spent learning about myself, here’s what I know for sure.
1. I’m innately curious. Did I say innately? I meant annoyingly curious. Seriously. I’ll spend time eating something, say like a hard-boiled egg, and I’ll find myself Googling the history of the boiled egg (it’s hard to say for sure when we started boiling eggs, as they’ve been a delicious part of our diet since our earliest ancestors. But some believe the popularity of the boiled egg rose hand in hand with the advent of pottery around 5000 BC – from there you can go down a rabbit hole into a long and detailed history of everything egg). I do this with almost everything I eat, too (It’s why I also have my own food blog).
To put it simply, I love learning new things.
2. I’ll read anything I can get my hands on. Again, like the history of boiled eggs. Or the back of cereal boxes. I even spend my lunch break doing much more reading than eating.
3. And like a good cocktail, the above two – my love of learning & reading – mix nicely to create my love of writing. And it’s always good to love what you do.
